Permaculture Design Certification Course: Corvallis, Oregon HORT 299
July 19 - Aug 6, 2010, Mon-Fri, 9am-4pm @ Oregon State University’s Urban Horticulture Center
Cost: $750 (10% Couples Discount)
Instructor: Andrew Millison, with guests Larry Korn, Mark Lakeman, Leonard Barrett, Heiko Koester, Tao Orion and others
Field Trips to Portland City Repair, Aprovecho and others
This course is open to both enrolled OSU students and to the general public. We will cover the internationally recognized Permaculture Designer Certification curriculum with classroom work, field trips, hands-on projects, experiential exercises, amazing guest speakers and a great design project.
Permaculture Design is a method of land planning that works at scales from garden to farm and village to city. It is an ethically based holistic design system that uses principles derived from ecosystems, native peoples, and time-tested ways to create sustainable settlements and organizations. Although rooted in agriculture, Permaculture design is interdisciplinary, touching on many subjects including regional planning, ecology, animal husbandry, horticulture, appropriate technology, architecture, and international development.

This course goes above and beyond the standard 72 hour Permaculture Design course, with close to 90 hours of instruction, amazing guest lecturers, and field trips to some of the most established Permaculture projects in Oregon.

Students are responsible for their own food and lodging during the course.

I just clicked on the link you gave and I see there is a test garden. My two sons will be going to OSU and I will be sure to visit the garden and watch it grow. Maybe I can take the course once I get my kids through school!

Glad you like the site. I'm keeping it fresh, changing it up as we install more Permaculture on campus. Hope to see you here, send your boys my way to take the semester class in the spring!

Take care,

Andrew
